lyrics

Words
I wrote a text message
Oh I poured out my heart to you
but for some reason you never received it and I didn't know that it didn't go through
and when you never replied, oh I thought I had died, and I crawled in a hole in my gloom
tried to keep myself going, but never knowing, through technology I got screwed

And I think
Eyes are like spies for the heart
They see what words are silently screaming and return their true meaning
but words unassisted get tangled and twisted
and love is for talkers 
obsession for stalkers
but I got no better offers
so all of these words are for you

And I saw a brand new color
something never before been seen
and it wasn't some shade of red, blue, or yellow
not an orange or purple or green

well it was made under guidance of some underground science
and had only been seen by a few
and when i got all in a rage cause I could not explain it
I suggested they name it for you
and I think 

Eyes are like spies for the heart
They see what words are silently screaming and return their true meaning
but words unassisted get tangled and twisted 
and love is for talkers 
obsession for stalkers 
but I got no better offers
so all of these words are for you

take them alone but i pray you
realize they're counterfeit sounds that betray you
and they cannot tell you what I'm dying for you to know

When you finally received my text message
You wrote back stop I feel the same way too
but the timing was wrong I thought you'd quickly responded
when I promised to stop bothering you
You used a double exclamation, which I saw as extra frustration
missed the punctuation from your point of view
So I never wrote back, I just left it at that
And you didn't dare make the next move
And I think

Eyes are like spies for the heart
they see what words are silently screaming
and return they're true meaning
but words unassisted get tangled and twisted
and love is for talkers
obsession for stalkers
and I need you like air or like water for authors
but I got no better offers, so i guess all of these words have to do
I guess all of these words are for you
